School Keynote

The Believe Keynote is designed to engage and inspire students to adopt a mindset that will allow them to see past the barriers they face. Founder Sarah Wells is an Olympic hurdler, and is no stranger to obstacles. Today’s youth are faced with similar problems in a fast-paced world that require them to walk the path of uncertainty and constantly be adapting.

Many students will encounter obstacles along their journey and some will consider giving up in a moment of adversity. During this critical adolescent time, it is important we talk about being resilient, believing in yourself and learning through our mistakes and obstacles. By showing young people that even Olympic athletes make mistakes and fall down, Sarah’s presentation will exemplify what will happen when you focus on the process, persevere past the obstacles and continue to believe in yourself.
